Last Generation responsible for multiple stunts, including throwing mashed potatoes on Monet painting

Activists in Germany broke into the Berlin Brandenburg Airport on Thursday and glued themselves to the tarmac in protest of government inaction on climate change.

The activists were members of the climate activism group Letzte Generation (Last Generation) and stated that the stunt was staged in protest of greenhouse gas emissions caused by air travel.

“One affluent percent of the population is responsible for around half of flight-related greenhouse gas emissions,” Last Generation said in a public statement.

On Oct. 23, activists from Last Generation hurled mashed potatoes at a $110 million Monet painting which was in a Potsdam museum.

The group said that they threw mashed potatoes at the painting to raise awareness about the dangers of fossil fuels.
